Greek Riots: The veneer of civilization is very thin indeed

These scenes look like something out of the future America portrayed in The Army of the Republic, but they're happening right now in Greece:

The catalyst for the nationwide riots was the shooting of a Greek youth by police, but clearly the root cause runs much deeper. A hidden violence and rage is boiling just beneath the veneer of western civilization. The storm that is brewing will engulf the world. The Greek riots are just a preview of what will be coming to large American cities as the Second Great Depression deepens.

Video is no longer available.

Isn't that strange? Terms of violation?
If the First Amendment no longer works, the second one will.
To be an America has never been so sad.

When you lose everything,.....

you have nothing to lose. This has been a longtime coming, and unfortunately this will take a longtime to go away.

Any society is only three missed meals away from

anarchy...

CHA-CHING!

If only...

Actually, chaos is a lot closer. Anarchy is too much like actual work and responsibility for more nihilist posers.

Same thing as the riots in

Same thing as the riots in Southern California springing from the Rodney King beating caught on tape. The "oppressed" lower class will only take so much until they break. In an imagined widespread shortage of food, fuel, etc. there would definitely be widespread violence. Parents protecting their kids can get very desperate, for example. On the other hand, many people also help each other out..."enlightened self-interest", anyone?.

Yes, "imagined"

Are you claiming there are currently food, fuel, etc. shortages that are causing riots in the US? Point 'em out, "bro".

tried to make the guy below aware his links don't work. There are riots around the world, and I'm sure there are tons of videos about them.
I'll try here:

all different reasons, can't find a common thread amongst them. anyone else have a master list of riots around the world?

The common thread

I imagine would be something like "globalization."

Everyone is losing control over their own lives due to globalization in one form or another. In the end people are angry and frustrated over the fact that they do not, and cannot control their own destiny.

It reminds me of something this lady at the RNC said about the protesters: "They don't even know what they're protesting."

I imagine that is right. But they do know that something is very, very wrong. Like the hard money advocates note: Not a person in 10,000 understand that the government is eroding their savings through inflation. All they know is that they're poor, and it is not their fault. They followed all the rules, then got screwed.

So I guess the common thread would be something like: Anger

since this happened in Greece i'll say how i feel

i'm tired of these riots that involve destruction of property. if the people of Greece truly want to make a change those pigs in the video shouldn't be standing in the open as they are. they should be ducking for cover in order to get out of the way of all the "freedom" that is buzzing by their heads.

No matter who you vote for, the government always gets in - Bill Hicks

these riots and demonstrations have been going for years

in Greece there are riots and demonstrations weekly for many years.
Its just not reported in the MSM until now...
there are youtube videos with whole cop and special forces units being completely overpowered beaten and burned firebombed.
2 years ago students attacked a police headquaters and completely destroyed burning almost 100 police cars...

Follow the rules of life.

I have 3 simple rules in life to live by.

1. Shit happens.

2. Shit happens frequently.

3. Get used to the first two rules.

We may well see this begin to happen on our side of the pond, and soon, but you know, there's not a lot you can do to quell an angry mob. It's counterproductive to sit around fretting about it, so just deal with it when/if it gets here. If everyone is as prepared as they've been touting the last couple of weeks in here, then you should be fine. Do I detect a hint of self-doubt amongst the ranks?

and you better prepare for

and you better prepare for the shit! for when the shit gets deeper and you are not prepared for the shit, the shit will kill you and those you love!

There IS No Doubt ! We The People Are At War ...

There is no doubt ! We the people are at war with those that attempt to strip away the freedoms and liberties that were given to us by our creator and have been faught for by the blood given of our brothers, fathers, uncles, and grandfathers, etc..
Now, America is in the preliminary stages. The direction that America is heading under our current leadership and the sign of no correctness ahead, rest assured we will be at war with those that oppose the constitution and the rule of law as our founding fathers designed it.
The change that has been predicted by our current president elect is partially correct. There will be change allright. MORE of dictatorial police state, out of control presidential powers and growth of government. People disappearing under the name of terrorism (fear tactics). Our government organizations will be behind it all.
People are uniting and binding together in mass numbers. Saddly enough there is no stopping it. Government is showing no signs of letting up. So the people will fight with greater numbers and power.
Who would have ever thought this would happen in our generation. God forbid that this would happen in america. May we seek direction and know that God will prevail.

Just how did our founding Fathers design the Constitution?

If what I have been reading is correct, we were never privy to the Constitution. Shocking huh. It's nice to know you have spent years of your life for something that does not apply to you and probably never will. From what I have read, unless you were an original signee or one of the 50 states, the constitution does not apply to you. It doesn't even apply to us in the court systems in this country. The courts operate under UCC ( Uniform Commercial Code ) which is the law of commerce, which is derived from admiralty law. Thus, the yellow trimmed flags in the courts. You are not in a common law court you are in a UCC court. In order to levy fines and fees and taxations on you, they make you a strawman from birth. Which means they give you a birth certificate with your name in all capital letters. which signifies a corporation. They do this on all legal documents and bankster documents, ss card, drivers license, they even teach you to sign both your first and last name in caps, which means the same thing as ALL CAPS! We are slaves ALL OF US. The devil is in the details. Why else do they capitalize UNITED STATES on everything. I am starting to realize what the bar association is for now. Now, I understand anarchy.

Yeah

It's just cRaZy that the governments around the world would rather gear up for a war with their citizens than change their ways.

In America, all they have to do is stop all their wasteful spending and abide by the constitution.

They would rather the country fall into chaos than lose an oz of their illegal power.

"Tyrants fear nothing more than insubordination"

"It's just one big club... and WE ain't in it!"

wow...all this hope...

Thank you for the message of fear and despair.

My day was AOK until I found out my city would be torn apart by death and violence.

Do I have to believe this?

Or can I just be hopeful?

UPCOMING 2nd Depression

The Elite meet EVERY week, on their dastardly plans. Their agenda seems to change, as often as I change my underwear. Remember the North American Union? ...That was a BUST... I beleive WE THE PEOPLE of the USA, got enough information out, and the backlash was too great for the New World Order to follow this agenda. Now we see a VERY purposful, and long-term effort to create another 2nd Depression. Will Americans riot? All I have heard from people is that the 1000 OLD MEN that Make-up the NEW WORLD ORDER, will be made to account for their actions. American Wealth has indeed been plundered, but this seems to have been the BIG Wake-up call for the American People. ...over 400 million guns in America? I wish luck to the New World Order should they choose to expand their hegemonic control. The groups of the CFR, Trilateral Commission, Bilderberg, and Bohemian Grove Attendees, and Federal Reserve are what constitutes the NEW WORLD ORDER. These Evil men wish nothing more than to control and manipulate EVERY aspect of our lives -- and they do so on a daily basis. I say the American People will not unleash any anger toward burning tires, or flipping cars, but forcing answers from such despots as: David Rockefeller, Nick Rockefeller, Dick Cheney, Henry Kissinger, Rumsfeld, Zbignew Brzinski, the Rothschild bankers, Bernanke, Paulson, and their fellow Elite evil-doers.
